Just the other day you saw the amazing images of authorities arresting the suspect wanted for allegedly being responsible for the bombings in Boston, but now there's some controversy.
The main suspect is sedated and under heavy guard, and now officials say they're going to interrogate and charge him without reading him his Miranda Rights. Those are the basic rights given to us if we were to be arrested in connection with a crime. One man says this isn't the way to go.
"We live in a society with rules and regulations, and I think he should be given his rights," says James Gorby, Stonewood resident.
Officials say Miranda Rights can be refused to someone if they are posing some sort of immediate threat to society, but one man says if they don't follow basic procedure, that it could come back to haunt us.
"You wouldn't want a group of lawyers coming in and saying 'hey, you didn't read him his rights, throw it out," says William F. Smith, Clarksburg resident.
As of right now there are more than 50 victims still in the hospital, and some of them are still in critical condition. There's still no word on when the suspect will appear in court.
